Behaviour assessments are requested by councils when considering what Order to place on a dog, generally after an aggressive incident.
It is important to understand that a behaviour assessment is an assessment of the dog on that particular day and in that particular environment that the assessment was undertaken – this assessment therefore may not support or correlate well to the incident in question.
For that reason, we also encourage the council to forward us the incident report and ask the owner to fill out a detailed questionnaire. This then gives us as much information to make an informed assessment.
The council then make the final decision for the dog, not AVBS.
